What’s not so great

Waring pro induction gives you the most basic level of cooking. It does not fit well for bulk cooking as it has only one cooking surface.

The embedded features do not include a child lock or a pause feature. This endangers the safety and increases the chances of an accidental interruption or change of the preset function.

The induction cooktop is only good enough for induction friendly cookware. They have to be ferromagnetic in order for the induction process to take place. All other pots and pans will not work.

The cooling fan is very noisy. The induction heating area is quite small and fits with only pots and pans with 8 inches. This makes it impossible to cook bacon or a large steak.

At its lowest setting, the cooktop will still boil water. This it does by cycling on and off. There is no long simmer feature that is apt for gravies and soups.

When the timer time expires, it just beeps and does not automatically shut down. Someone has to physically turn the induction off.

It does not have a residual heat indicator that helps the chef to know with a glance whether the cooktop is safe to touch or not for cleaning.

How Waring pro induction cooktop works

Below are how to use the Waring Pro induction cooktop:

To switch on

Once the unit is plugged into an electrical outlet, place the cookware on the glass top and press the on/off button

To adjust heat settings

The cooktop has eight heat settings, from low(1) to High (8). To operate the heat control, press the button labeled heat on the left side.

The indicator light above the label heat will illuminate. To increase heat, press the upward arrow and to decrease press the downward arrow. The LED screen will indicate the current setting

Timer function

To operate the timer, press the button labeled timer on the left side. The indicator will illuminate above it. Use the arrow increase or decrease button to set the timer to your desired cooking time.

If you press and hold the up or down arrow, the timer will advance rapidly. The timer can be adjusted to a maximum of 150 minutes. At the end of the timed cycle, the timer will beep 3 times.

Automatic pan detection

The cooktop will turn off automatically if the cookware is not compatible or lifted up for 30 seconds. It will not recognize cookware which is not ferromagnetic such as glass, copper, and aluminum.

The induction works well with a magnetic grade of stainless steel, iron, cast iron, and steel or iron-clad aluminum or copper.

Overheat detection

The unit automatically turns off after a long beep when the cookware/cooktop exceeds the temperature limit.

This prevents the burning of empty pots and heating up of the components of induction.

Switching off

Just press the on/off button. When the unit is off, the fan may continue running for a minute or more until the cooktop cools down. Wait for it to stop before starting the cleaning process.

Use a damp cloth with a mild soap solution followed by a dry wipe. For more details read our article on cleaning the cooktop.
